It is absolutely fitting that Leonard should pay tribute to your endeavours
for not only is this website an incredible resource but also a great source

It is us, Jarkko, who should thank you. There is not one day, where I can't find something new, enlightening, comforting, or long missed clips. And not to forget, thank you for all the friends I found here
for the nice atmosphere in your Forum, for keeping politics aside, for ticket infos and presale ... and last
not least for the files.

Thanks very well deserved indeed, but it must have been lovely for Jarkko to hear it from the man himself!
Cheers to all concerned, and of course thank you Marrten for videoing it.
